What do you think of the new in-game YouTube upload feature?  Have you had a chance to try it out?

If so, respond to this thread and post links of your videos so we can see what you're using it for.

Just goofy stuff so far. But when I do more I'll be sure to link it.

Tempted to do a video showing off people linking items in channel chat from the heroic instance of Plane of War and then the reactions from the people raiding EM / HM raid zones that spaz out because the heroic gear is better than the EM / HM gear.

Should be enough to entertain for hours on end imo. I know that's pretty much all our channel chat on my server was full of for 8 hours straight.

I'm uploading a test video now but just wanted to share that if you have your YouTube account linked through Gmail and are using 2 Factor identification you won't be able to upload until you give EQ2 authorized access!

If I get a good video uploaded I'll link it here, Rothgar

edit: Geez the upload takes a long time.. is there any way to save the video to our computer?

edit: Cute video upload achievements.. but far too easy to get. Record 1-2 seconds, upload, rinse repeat. Maybe make a minimum recording time required?

Ok, here's my video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kZVAqBOJCDs

Just under 3 minutes, took over an hour to upload on default settings. I think I'll stick with FRAPs but nice feature nonetheless! :)

Only took 52 seconds last night just to get a feel for it.  Even that took quite awhile to load while in game.  Wasn't a problem other than a bit of lag when I was grinding crafting writs.

Rothgar .. One little comment

We use to be able to embed Youtube videos in our posts. We can no longer do this. Is there any chance of getting a way to embed the play added to these forums?

Loving the video capture feature.  Just recorded this one today: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-VnTiw1Hd0E

Works much better on my machine than Fraps ever did.  Fraps bogged down my machine a bit, this is nice and smooth.

Well done.

The reason it took so long to upload is because the video data rate is like 60Mbps.  I did a video for a little over a minute and it was over 500MB. :p

Yea both are in Kylong Plains, down hill for the win~

More vids! Looking into audio stuff this time around...

Fly Over

The Reform of Fear

Hey Rothgar, can we please look into getting mic recording? Per haps use Voice Chat 'personal' channel as a recorder or something? Obviously records game sound, just no mic stuff it seems, makes me sad panda. Unless I am missing a check box or something /shrug.

I have a problem, the vid output seems limited to 16:9 - but I always run 16:10.

so my vids always end up looking crushed.

What do I think?...I think that I really, really hope that the people working on implementing it weren't pulled away from working on something that even remotely matters. I suppose I've "had a chance to try it out" but I haven't actually tried it out because who cares?

Everyone who doesn't have access to and knowledge of normal editing tools. This is a way to show that EQ2 exists. The only problem with it is that the good and well-edited videos might get lost in the myriad of quick-vids.But again, it opens windows to inexperienced people. I will never understand pessimism like this for videos and house keeping... Or "waste of time when you can powerlevel and get uber items". Have fun, relax! SMILEY

It's a way to show EQ2 exists to who? Are people that don't know about the game searching for it?

I'm not against videos and "house keeping"...I just don't want people who can actually address gameplay related issues working on things like this when other things need attention. If the people who worked on implementing this have no other function related to gameplay....fine. What is "waste of time when you can powerlevel and get uber items" supposed to mean? Who said anything about either of those topics? I do like uber items...though I don't think I have any currently.  I don't power-level...not intentionally at least. Soloing my latest alts might feel that way with the stupidly overpowered lower tier loot.

I am saying this because a lot of people complain about lore, LoN, house keeping, SC items etc. etc. etc. because they only want more nuke-and-loot ingame to be powerful and allmighty ingame, and forget all other things. Being allowed to make movies this easily will only be a plus to get this game known to a wider mass.You can also choose your own tags on youtube so if you add some more tags you can get the game shown to people who are searching for non-EQ2-related videos too.More people = more money, more money = more staff, more staff = faster bug fixes, additions and improvements.Anything that gives EQ2 some good PR is good in my opinion.Some things in EQ2 are broken, like some unfinishable quests in isle of mara (monk training quests with shard collection) and so on, but it is obvious that the team is always working on something when you look at how much is added all the time and how fast it happens.Some other games are sleeping while this game grows and grows and grows. But as long as the framerate problem persists, people will continue to laugh and leave. That is definitely the most serious issue with EQ2.Bottom line after a lot of rambling is that new features like this is always nice, and will in the long run help improve EQ2 as a game, so it's important to have them.

I don't really understand the purpose of the in game recorder as the quality is not good at all, it doesn't upload at a good p & it takes forever to upload even the smallest amount. Frapsing, compressing, & uploading to youtube normally is much quicker & better quality.
